The Padrón 1964 Anniversary Torpedo has been such a landmark of excellence, Cigar Aficionado named it Cigar of the Year 2021, with the respected publication awarding it a near perfect 97 rating and describing it as: "Box-pressed and attractive, it starts with a woody, nutty core that gradually becomes more complex. Notes of hazelnut are uncannily precise and segue into a rich, opulent smoke of cocoa bean that settles onto the palate like the fine confections of a chocolatier. The draw and burn are perfect and the cigar’s only flaw is that it ends."
The Montecristo 1935 Anniversary Nicaragua is offered as a box-pressed series of four sizes. Box-pressed, or Soft -Press cigars do not have the sharp angles and defined corners of square -pressed cigars, (which are formed in slotted wooden trays), but rather they are round cigars that are packed tightly into their own dress boxes and then compacted by a hand press. The result is a squarish shaped cigar that provides an exceptionally slow burn and an effortless draw. These hand selected tobaccos provide a medium to full bodied smoke with savory flavors of wood, coffee, cinnamon, earth, and spice, all enhanced with a long-lasting sweet tobacco finish. Order a box from JR Cigar and savor a smoke that combines the Grupo de Maestros unsurpassed Cuban craftsmanship with AJ Fernandez’s modern blending style. Good News: Montecristo 1935 Anniversary Nicaragua has received a well-deserved 95-point rating and was awarded the #2 spot in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of 2021.
